Jealousy leads to murder and impersonation in this 1960 thriller based on Patricia Highsmith's novel, The Talented Mr. Ripley. A handsome sociopath (Delon) charms his way into the lives of a wealthy playboy (Ronet) and his girlfriend (Lafort). The sunny Mediterranean setting contrasts sharply with Delon's dark scheming.
